Millions of people would like to cut down on their drinking without giving it up altogether--and this encouraging book has helped many make that goal a reality. Distinguished clinician-researchers William R. Miller and Ricardo F. Mu\u00f1oz have spent more than 40 years studying whether moderation works, who it works (and doesn't work) for, and how to achieve it. Armed with authoritative facts about "how much is too much," readers can set realistic, customized moderation goals. Loads of practical strategies, stories, and planning tips are included. Readers learn new ways to enjoy social events, defuse tension and stress, and cope with difficult emotions--with or without a glass in hand. Updated with the latest scientific data, the second edition is designed to be even more interactive, and features a new chapter on mindfulness.
